'Alfred Pennyworth', 'The Penguin' And More Cast In Fox's GOTHAM Series
Following the news that Ben McKenzie has joined the cast of Gotham as a young Detective Gordon, Fox have now revealed that Robin Lord Taylor will play Oswald Cobblepot (a.k.a. The Penguin) and Sean Pertwee will star as Alfred Pennyworth, while two actresses have also been cast in notable roles!
Ben McKenzie will be joined in Fox's Gotham pilot by three more actors in what promise to be pretty major roles in the series which chronicles the early years of Jim Gordon and Bruce Wayne. Robin Lord Taylor (Another Earth) has been cast as Oswald Cobblepot, a character described as having "the brains of a chess grandmaster and the morals of a jackal, Cobblepot is a low-level psychopath for gangster Fish Mooney, and hides his sadistic lust for power behind an exquisitely polite demeanor." Sean Pertwee (Elementary) meanwhile will play Alfred Pennyworth, "A tough-as-nails ex-marine from East London, Pennyworth has loyally served the Wayne family. Now, in the wake of their tragic deaths, he’s fiercely protective of the young Bruce Wayne — the boy who will eventually become Batman." Zabryna Guevara (The Guilt Trip) has been cast as Captain Essen, Detective Gordon’s boss at the Gotham City Police Department Homicide Squad. "Essen balances the two worlds of police and politics with a Machiavellian skill that’s as much corporate litigator as cop." Finally, Erin Richards (Being Human) will play Barbara Kean, Gordon's fiancée. She's described as being, "A sophisticated emergency doctor, Kean stands by her husband amid the corrupt world of Gotham."
